minority. >> the 44th president of these united states, barack obama. >> many of them had attended obama's inauguration. they had seen that breathtaking spectacle of a million and a half people on the mall. and it felt like a wholesale repudiation of the republican party. >> they walked into that dining room as depressed as i've seen any elected members of congress. they lost every senate seat they could lose. they lost all these house seats. the numbers were so great that they thought that they weren't coming back again, not for an election or two, but maybe a generation or two. >> narrator: as the night wore on, the talk turned to the future. >> three hours, some of the brightest minds in the republican party debated how to be relevant. >> the point i made was that we had to be prepared in the tradition of wooden at ucla to run a full court press. and we had to see how obama behaved and to offer an alternative to what he wanted to do. >> so, they decided that they needed to begin to fight obama on everything. this meant unyielding opposition to every one of the obama administration's l

everything you need to know about the inauguration of barack obama, the 44th president of the united states. >> the political theater and dignified simplicity, designed to show off a new nation's representativive government. today is special because it's sunday. tomorrow is the ceremonial swearing in on the mall. >> in this day and age, inaugurations have their own set of challenges. we will go over over the logistics and the schedule and the security. >> the formal swearing in is today. today is january 20, the constitutionally mandated day the president must be sworn in. that takes place in about an hour at the white house. we will get a preview from ed henry. >> good morning. interesting, the crowd's a lot smaller than they were four years ago. but still, as you noted, a lot of pomp and circumstance. it started when the president went to arlington national cemetery, met up with vice-president biden. there was a laying of a wreath at the tomb of the unknowns. the vice-president had been sworn in already this morning, a little bit earlier than the president. that's in part because he was s
. this was history. it was defining. let's remember the grand irony is if president obama as a state senator doesn't get up and go on the record opposing the war on iraq, it's hard to imagine he wins that primary. that was the key to the fact that he then became president of the united states. >> with consensus of opinion in hyde park at that moment. >> exactly. what you would do as a state senator from hyde park and i think he believed it. >> you had the conservatives, the realists who intellectually were saying this is the wrong war. it was on the one hand a safe position, but also once it became nationalized rather than just this moment, it was brave. >> that is good. the end of the war in iraq, the start treaty is like an a-15 type thing on the newspaper. it's incredibly important. nuclear weapons are massively destructive, dangerous things. we have way more than we need, ever, as does russia. over quite a bit of opposition extending political capital. >> and crumbling infrastructure. >> it's a big accomplishment. the record on afghanistan, you know, he ran on adding more troops to afghanistan
few days announced ambitious legislative proposals on gun reform in their own states. and of course federally, tomorrow ahead of schedule, president obama is set to unveil his own set of proposals in response to the newtown school shooting. the white house releasing this picture today of vice president biden, presenting his findings to the president and other cabinet members in a gun policy meeting. >> i can tell you that tomorrow the president and vice president will hold an event here at the white house to unveil a package of concrete proposals to reduce gun violence and prevent future tragedies like the one in newtown, connecticut. they will be joined by children from around the country who wrote the president letters in the wake of that tragedy, expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety along with their parents that event will be at approximately 11:45 a.m. i will not get ahead of the president in terms of what his package of proposals will include. i will simply note that the president has made clear he intends to take a comprehensive approach. he has also

-- the obama administration is trying to do what it can to stabilize things, but it lost a lot of influence with the departure of american forces. one thing that the american forces did get in the united states is more clout inside of iraq. >> host: talk about the release of a man accused of killing american soldiers. this issue that you write about in your book, "the endgame," but also some news that came out in november about the release of ali. >> guest: there's been a number of events that i think have worked against the american interest in iraq. that duke is one of them. she is an iraqi come he is a lebanese who was sent into iraq at the behest of the american courts because hezbollah is supported by iran. for the purposes of training of the shiite militia who were fighting the american troops, and he was captured along with a number of the shiite militia leaders in the rate connected in basra by the brits in which there's an american presence held in detention by the united states. but then under the status of forces agreement he was handed over to the iraqis. >> host: this agreement
president is going to give president obama their recommendations on tuesday in the state of the union is scheduled for february 12th, one month from yesterday. >> gregg: peter, thanks very much. >> fox news is taking a closer look at the gun control debate with a special hannity airing tonight featuring a studio audience compromised some of the new yorkers who were outed by the journal news for having gun permits. that is at 9:00 p.m. eastern time right here on fox news channel. >> arthel: growing concerns over the shortages of flu vaccines as sick americans are overcrowding emergency roommates and the cdc says the flu outbreak is reaching epidemic levels with new york state declaring a public health emergency. anna has more. >> reporter: this year's strain is nasty. it's particularly bad making people sicker for longer. hospitals around the country have seen spikes in flu related admissions and deaths. nationally public health officials say some places are experiencing shortages and patients are having to wait on shipments coming in. >> yesterday evening, 123 flu vaccines and now we
-- >> but this is a -- >> joe scarborough, take the issue of syria. how does the united states, a second obama term, try to affect the end game if there's a post assad syria, which as richard laid out could be so dangerous? >> we have to understand there are limits to american power. we can't go into syria. and affect that outcome dramatically. we did make a choice in egypt. and there were a lot of diplomats in the middle east that were calling me ahead of time that i'm friends with saying it was a terrible mistake, and we'll rue the day we made that decision and abandoned a friend of 30 years. that's something that historians will have to make their minds up with, but when it comes to foreign policy and i want to push back on richard, too. and richard, i'm glad you're back too, but -- don't you like how axelrod said, i'm glad you're back, but -- let me make my point. but the thing is, though, so much of the united states' power now is not going to be -- we're not going to project power by dropping drones in country after country after country where we haven't even declared war. there is going to be a t
states will always, always, always meet its debt. we will never default on its debt. that was introduced in 2010. it didn't pass because harry reid and president obama didn't want it to pass. they wanted to raise the specter of a default to use. so, chuck, you and i could make news right now on national television, would you agree to support the full faith and credit act and take the possibility of a default off the table? >> i support the mcconnell proposal. let us raise the debt ceiling. no strings attached. and if the president can raise it as he should be able to and if congress wants to reject it 2/3. the mcconnell proposal is a good republican proposal. i hope you support it. that's the way to go. >> a bill that says regardless of what happens with the debt ceiling, the united states will never default on the debt, would you support that or not? >> i support the concept. i'd have to look at the bill. the best way to do that is the mcconnell act. >> we may have just made news. >>> last week, general colin powell was here worried about a dark vein of intolerance in republican quarter
san obama, do solemnly swear, that i will execute the office of the president of the united states faithfully. >> when chief justice john roberts administered the oath to barack obama on january 20, 2009, there was a major problem. roberts was supposed to say "i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. " barack obama stopped and paused and smiled as if to say, come on, man, this is my big day. you have to get this right. unfortunately, he did not get it right so the very next night in the white house, they did it again. this time roberts used notes which he had not used the first time and they got it right. >> we walk for the history of democracy's big day monday at 8:00 a.m. and again at 8:00 p.m. eastern. this is part of a three-day holiday weekend on c-span 2's book-tv. >> the greatest honor history can bestow is the title of peacemaker. this honor now beckons america, the chance to lead the world at last out of the valley of turmoil and onto that high ground of peace that man has dreamed of since the dawn of civilization >> must embark on new progra
states had a focus on is, especially during the economic crisis when president obama came in -- you had rising problems with north korea -- that is what chuck hagel is saying. we do not have a magic wand. we need to essentially figure out the limitations we have. you can act in certain places and then hopefully find successes in those. that is a realistic assessment of power that i think gary schmitt and others on the neo- conservative side think the role of the united states is. they become more responsive of contributors to the international system. when you have limited power, i think it makes someone like chuck hagel very skeptical about the ability of the united states to do that. definitely when chuck hagel and senator jack reed traveled with president obama, this is part of their discussion. host: what kind of relationship do these two men have? guest: they do get along personally. i think if you looked at the first term of the obama administration, president obama -- it was quite natural for him to pick then-senator clinton to be secretary of state and keep bob gates on as secre
the campaign for a man named barack obama to be the president of the united states, you have this obvious issue which is most guys don't know somebody named barack obama. he doesn't look like a lot of voters. joe biden is kind of quintessentially like next door neighbor material. i thought this clip was interesting in 2008, here's joe biden being that kind of validator for voters on specifically, this issue of gups. take a look. >> i guarantee you, barack obama ain't taking my shotguns. so don't buy that malarkey. don't buy it. they're going to start pedalling that to you. i got two. if he tries to fool with my barretta, he has a problem. i like that little over and under. i'm not bad with it. so, give me a break! >> i think that's joe biden threatened to shoot his running mate. is that the subtext of that quote? that to me was quintessentially the role he's played from a kind of commit cal in terms of the image -- crafting the immamg of barack obama and selling him to voters. >> one i'm thrilled that malarkey has been around that long. it's an important word in our history now. but i think wha
. that being said, president obama only fanned the flames today painting a picture of government catastrophe based on the facts seems a bit trumped up. >> ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states. >> reporter: in the first press conference of his second term, president obama wasted little time scaring the day lights out of millions of americans who rely on government paychecks for one service or another, of the consequences of a u.s. default. >> may not be able to pay our troops or honor our contracts with small business owners. food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down nuclear materials wouldn't get their paychecks. >> reporter: the president's statement is speculative and not true because, frankly, no one knows what programs will be short changed if the u.s. can't meet its payment obligations. it's never happened before. but here is what we do know courtesy of the bipartisan policy center. if congress fails to raise the debt ceiling the government can spend only what it received in daily revenues each day. those revenues won't cover about 40% of g
in again on monday. what's the deal? >> reporter: well, craig, the reason is that the constitution states that the president has to be sworn in before noon on january 20th. january 20th falls on a sunday this year. it's the seventh time that happened in the nation's history so president obama will be officially sworn in here at the white house in a private ceremony in the blue room with families and chief justice john roberts. the day will begin with vice president biden getting sworn in by justice sotomayor. that's happening at a different time than president obama because we are told according to several officials that the chief justice at the justice department has done investigating on this, and some reporting on this, apparently biden wants justice sotomayor to swear him in. there is a schedule you willing conference and she has a book signing and they'll get that taken care of earlier in the day. the vice president and the president will head to a wreath laying ceremony at arlington national cemetery and then during the evening they will attend an inaugural reception. so it is a bus
states to do that -- chuck hagel very skeptical of the ability of united states to do that. when he traveled with president obama, a think this was part of this discussion. host: what relationship does carry schmidt and senator hagel have? guest: if you look of a first term of the obama administration, there were doubts about his foreign policy and. it was natural for him to pick then-senator clinton to be secretary of state. i think in a second term, he is not running for reelection. he is more inclined to pick somebody he is comfortable with. the gun along in the senate, so presumably they will get along in it administrations -- they got along in the senate, so presumably they will get along in the administration. i think the fundamental reason, senator hagel, he and the president are in lock step. one of the things it should be done in the hearings for the nomination, and the things about american power and leadership, it is fine to talk about the limits of power. everyone should understand hard limits to power. i think that issue, that debate can be used fully put on the table w
in 2000 -- to early 2010 about a year after obama took office, three things happened. the first was -- it came from united states supreme court and i think no person in the united states that i can think of has benefited more from the supreme court then karl rove. two decisions. one in 2000 obviously was washed the gore which put his candidate in the white house and two, in 2010, citizens united decision. that opened the floodgates for contributions, unlimited contributions and in many cases from secret sources with no transparency whatsoever that is just unprecedented in history. the second thing that happened was running the republican party and it kind of ran into a ditch. he couldn't raise a dime and early in 2010 you may recall there was a revelation in los angeles that they republican national committee had been entertaining its donors at a strip club. and for the party of family values, this did not work too well so they could not raise a time. this gave wrote his opening, so in april he had a luncheon at his house in washington d.c. at weaver terrace. it was cohosted by
recommendation to president obama later this week. former secretary of state colin powell and senator joe manchin both weighing in today. >> i'm a gun owner. i'm a believer in the second amendment. i know the amendment rather thoroughly. i know the issue of the well-regulated militia. but at the same timeresponsibil constitution and bill of rights to protect our people and with respect to assault rifles i see no need for bush mav in the hands of an individual person who might be deranged. go out toy range and fire a bushmaster. >> you can't push law abiding gun owners away. they have to be at the table. and you need to find out what their preference of protecting that. and what i would say to all of my friends that are nra and gun owners, that there's no way that they're going to take your second amendment rights away. that won't happen. >> let's get right to nbc news white house correspondent peter alexander. with another good day to you, peter. the vice president's going to be reporting his findings to the president tuesday. do we have an idea what he might be recommending? >> well, he sort of
negotiations moving forward with them. the secretary of state also spoke with the prime minister of algeria yesterday. she has had several conversations with him since this crisis first started. president obama spoke with prime minister david cameron, and he is being briefed regularly on the developments of this situation, alex. one problem, though, is getting information that is very difficult to get. information from that region. it's often quite murky. alex? >> especially under these circumstances. >> yes. >> let me gelt to the domestic front. wow. what happened in williamsburg? because the house gop agrees to temporarily lift the debt ceiling for three months. what kind of surprise was that? what does that do for the debate now? >> reporter: alex, i think it changes the debate, because house speaker john boehner, remember, initially said that any increase in the debt limit had to be offset with dollar for dollar spending consults. so what happened over the past several days that the republicans essentially moved off of that point. they agreed to increase the debt limit without spending
. imagine that, the a nobel peace laureate sitting in prison and president obama the other day hailed the spirit of cooperation between the night states in china. abe there's an argument for that but these two guys are nobel peace laureates, and there ought to be some -- another thing about china, in 2010 we did not have human rights talks with china. we are a liberal democracy and they are one-party dictatorship at the gulag. we held human rights talks with them and afterword, after one session, the president questions for our guys. as assistant secretary of state named michael posner. i think he is assistant secretary of state for democracy or something like that. in the press said, talks with the chinese communists to torture tibetans and others every single day. archive the press said they are some immigration law? if he did come up, did you bring it up or did they? posner said we did, early and often. early and often to show that we too have problems in our society. this is what we used to call the the battle phase of the war of the criminalist. it is not gone. the final remarks.

hagel very skeptical of the ability of the united states to do that. that is a legitimate debate. but definitely when chuck hagel and jack reed traveled with president obama when he was running for office, i think this was part of their discussion. host: what kind of relationship do these two men have, the president and senator chuck hagel? guest: they do get along personally. if you look at the first term of the obama administration, president obama was elected, there were doubts about his national security experience. it was quite natural for him to pick then senator clinton to be secretary of state and keep bob gates on as secretary of defense. i think he thinks in the second term, he is not running for reelection. he has had experience, so he is much more inclined to pick somebody who is comfortable with, which is senator chuck hagel and senator john kerry. they got along in the senate, so presumably there will get along in the administration. i would add that i do think that one has to ask why, for example, the president is willing to make a flight out of the nomination? i d

will transpire in the region. prior to 9/11 the united states contained terrorism on my part of the world. after 9/11 we actively went after and our strategy was to eliminate and now with president obama it's to disengage. they see us disengaging. now, i would remind, you're right exactly why we went in there. now the reason why al-qaeda was able to locate was because of the taliban control. i don't think there's any doubt that the taliban are a significant force remaining. and al-qaeda has proven to be remarkably capable of regenerating itself with new leadership quite often. so you see a region and with enormous difficulties not to mention the threat of iran being, continuing on the path towards the acquisition of nuclear weapons. let me ask you about the president's choices for his cabinet. correct me if i'm wrong but i can't remember a time when the opposing party has opposed every single person that the president nominates for his cabinet. it's usually been the rule if the president's going to be in charge of the government, we have to give him the people he wants to run it. but republicans
